San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2015
San Francisco based Attorneys.org today announced that its flagship website has re-launched.
The site now includes in-depth legal guides and a comprehensive national directory of lawyers. The site’s legal guides have been carefully prepared by practicing attorneys and designed to help regular people better understand common personal legal matters such as Bankruptcy, Divorce, Criminal Defense, DUI and Personal Injury. The directory of attorneys spans the entire United States, featuring profiles of almost every lawyer in the country with detailed profiles including their areas of practice, education and state bar status.
Lawyers are hired by consumers to assist in situations from the mundane to life-changing and the process of finding the right attorney is typically more difficult and more stressful than it should be. Relying on family and friends for attorney referrals is common but usually problematic – even for those who have attorneys as relatives. It’s often difficult, even for lawyers themselves, to make an informed referral especially outside their own region or area of specialization.
According to The Research Intelligence Group (TRiG) more than 75% of consumers who have sought to retain a lawyer in the past year have relied on the internet to assist in the process. Recent studies have also shown that few Americans feel confident in their ability to find the right lawyer should they need one.
“When faced with a pressing legal issue, whether a tax, contract or family matter, not enough of us are properly prepared. The issues are often daunting and the legal process confusing. We’ve worked hard to create complete in-depth legal guides for common personal legal issues without confusing legalese. It’s just so important that people are properly prepared,” said Tom Alper, general manager of Attorneys.org. He continued, “In addition to having the proper information, it’s critical to find the right attorney to meet your needs. Even lawyers have trouble making helpful referrals. Our directory includes profiles of almost every attorney in the country and provides thorough backgrounds on each of them.”
Attorneys.org is also a powerful resource for attorneys. Every lawyer on the site has a free online profile that can be easily updated and expanded. The site works closely with a team of lawyers to refine its guides and service.
Attorneys.org will continue to rapidly expand its services for both consumers and lawyers. Tom Alper, general manager of Attorneys.org concludes: “We’re just getting started at Attorneys.org and are excited about what’s ahead.”
Founded in 2012, with offices in New York, San Francisco and Las Vegas, Attorneys.org is committed to helping consumers better understand the law and find the right attorney. The site features in-depth legal guides to help consumers better understand common personal legal issues and also provides a comprehensive national directory of almost every licensed lawyer.
